iOS Siri

Siri is the highly anticipated addition to Apple's new iPhone, allowing you to control practically everything with your voice. It can check the weather, compose a text message, and find practically any information you want. Here's a look at how it works.

You activate Siri by holding down your home button, much like you already do (or don't) to activate Voice Control in iOS 4. From there you can speak to Siri and ask it questions. If it needs more information, it will respond to you with additional questions until it's ready to provide the information or carry out the task you've requested—and it can handle a lot.

-Check the Weather, Movie Showtimes, and More
-Listen to Your Text Messages and Respond with Your Voice
